Not sure, but if they do I'd expect them to hit his aura or his cooldowns. Though with his stupidly pointless passive, I don't really think he needs a nerf. I don't really play Taric much though.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

If they're going to hit him, it'd probably be the armor shred on the active portion of his Shatter or the passive armor to others to promote aggressive play.

Most obvious though is changing the heal amount if used on someone else instead of yourself.

Having played quite a lot of Taric, if they do nerf him, I expect they'll probably go for either mana costs, or the cooldown of his ultimate. Doubt they'll go for the aura. In recent history, they have only went for the cooldowns and AP ratios, they haven't tweaked the armor and armor shred for 3 years now.

Did I help you? Do you feel nice today? Take a look at my guide,I would really appreciate it.

If nerf is inc it will be on ulti cd.

Maybe some more nerf on shatter.

I feel like taric is exactly what riot wants out of its supports though.

They'll either reduce the armor value from shatter or make it situational. As in WHEN Taric uses shatter to reduce an enemy's armor value, his carry/team gets the bonus armor for a duration.

As well as reduce the armor shred or make it overtime rather than an immediate reduction, that way Taric actually does better in sustained fights and doesn't have as much burst potential in lane.

His ultimate is fine imo.

They need to buff his passive....Supports (as they are typically played now) don't AA anything unless under turret to assist their carry in CSing...I'd prefer him having a bit shorter CD on his heal, by removing his horrible passive they'd be forced to reduce the CD....I had more to say, but currently Shatter makes Taric/Corki or Graves/Taric too strong a kill lane.

Been saying Taric was one of the best supports since before they nerfed all the other ones :P

This would make Shatter kinda' stupidly powerful in teamfights. It'd be a 60 armor swing in favor of your team. As is, Shatter is only worth 30 bonus armor to your team, whether or not Taric uses its active.
